From the Baltimore area, follow the I-97/Route 3/Route 301 corridor
south, passing Glen Burnie, Crofton, Bowie, and Upper Marlboro. After
passing under Route 4, near Upper Marlboro, **continue south on Route 301
for approximately 3.5 miles. You will pass a traffic signal at Croom Road
(CITGO Gas Station on left, Bojangles Chicken on right). A short distance
beyond that there is another traffic signal at South Osborne Road and then a
7-11 on the right. The park entrance is 100 yards past the 7-11, on the
RIGHT. There is a sign, but the road is not readily obvious or visible until
you are almost upon it. Watch for the large orange CBCW sign. Follow the
entrance road for approximately two miles, to the parking lot near the
picnic pavilions. From the Washington, D.C. area, take the Capitol
Beltway/I-495 to Exit 11/MD Route 4 South. Continue on Route 4, toward Upper
Marlboro, for approximately 7 miles. Just past Upper Marlboro (P.G.
Equestrian Center/Showplace Arena on your right) exit onto Route 301 south.
**Follow the directions above. If you miss the park entrance, you will have
to make a U-turn, driving back north on Route 301 to the traffic signal at
South Osborne Road. There, you will make a second U-turn, heading south
toward the park entrance once more.
Volksmarch participants can ignore the honor box on the entrance road;
however, a $3.00 per vehicle park service charge will be collected at the
event Start. All proceeds from the park service charge go to the Rosaryville
Conservancy to be used to maintain and improve park facilities. This charge
is in addition to event participation fees. Registration for the walk is
$3.00 per person for those wishing credit toward IVV Achievement Awards.
Registration for all other participants is $2.00 per person. Youths under 12
may walk for free and no family group will be required to pay more than
$10.00 in event participation fees. The IVV has declared May 8 as World
Walking Day. For both days of this walk there will be a special event stamp
and each participant will receive an attractive commemorative certificate
when he or she turns in a completed Start Card. Sunday is also Mother's Day.
Each mother participating will receive a free hug and kiss.
